Violet Relend is called the Ghost of Canaan Island because of her white hair and eerie eyes.
Though they mock her, Violet helps the citizens of Canaan with her family's dwindling fortune. When she purchases a prosthetic for Arie Mendoza, a wounded soldier fresh from war, he insists on paying her back.
Wanting only to be left alone, Violet gives Arie a list of twelve impossible tasks. As she reluctantly gets to know him, the grip her fears and anxieties have on her loosens-until a developer threatens to have her crumbling, cliff-side house condemned. Violet will need more than Arie's help to save her home. The entire town will have to rally around their Ghost.
If Violet doesn't move fast enough, the walls of her carefully constructed life will fall in around her and drag her into the ocean's depths.

This is a beautifully written story by Meg Collett. If you have read anything else by her and enjoyed it, you definitely want to read the Canaan Island series!!! I am in love... Not one I wanted to ever end, yet had to know where everything was going.
LOVE LOVE This series!! In this book we get Violet's story. Violet has been called the Ghost of Canaan Island and she's dealt with it. While taking care of her home and working part time at the local bakery she's also helping those in need anonymously. One of those she helped was Arie to get his new leg but he's found out what she's done and wants to pay her back. Instead of taking money she puts together a list of chores that will make him go away once he reads the list, won't it? Instead they get to know each other and feeling develop on both sides. When someone wants to buy her home her world is no longer the way she thought she needed it to be. This author knows how to give her readers stories that have such depth and characters that you can't get enough of! This story is no different. We were introduced to Violet in Keepers and I for one couldn't wait for her story and it was well worth the wait. While it was Violet and Arie's story Stevie and Kyra of course are there. The author shows that everyone is stronger then they think and it's okay to let people in. I received a copy in exchange for nothing. It's my choice to leave my opinion
Meg does it again!! If you read the first two books of the series, this one is a must read. Again you will have new characters to love, as well as new ones to hate. In Keepers, we are introduced to Arie and Violet, this is their story. Being the "Ghost," Violet has had to deal with bullies all of her life, but little do the islanders realize, she has been helping anyone in need of a hand for years. When she met Arie, she found out he had lost part of his leg to a IED, and was having trouble paying for a prosthetic leg he needed. When Arie finds out it was she that paid for it, he needed to pay her back. Little did he know how much help Violet actually needs. Wanting to be alone, Violet makes Arie a list. Pick all the red flowers from the field, clean the gargoyles' teeth, anything to drive him away. As the time passes, they begin to lean on each other and help each other heal. The only problem, sometimes ghosts have a way of not letting go!
